BeOS & Derivatives Michael Lotz added code to generate QR-code for the KDL (Kernel Debug Land) ouput (which pops up when the kernel crashes). No more blurry photos with debug output, but a QR code which decodes to the clear-text KDL debug output. Here's one of the relevant commits, an example showing a QR code, and text from decoded sample QR code.

Err Event Viewer in Windows or at least a Kernel dump.

It is the 21st century my friend, people have worked out how to write text file to a hardrive.

And how do you get the text file to the kernel developer???

Remember, the machine doesn't actually work reliably - otherwise it wouldn't be generating kernel panics.

This is so fricken obvious - I can't believe you are still arguing about this...
